I’ve been interested in going whale watching for a few years now. So I finally booked a trip and dragged Rico out of bed way too early on a Saturday morning. What I didn’t realize is that there are laws about how close you’re allowed to get to the whales (no closer than 200 feet). Apparently, I need a longer lens! We drove two hours north to the dock and then took a 2hr boat ride to get to where the whales play. We stayed for about an hour and half on the actual tour following the whales then headed back to the dock.

In my mind, I was expecting to see something like this…

So I ended up getting frustrated and Rico took over camera duties. Most of these are his 🙂 Most are cropped down due to being so far away, so pardon the graininess.
